Good local eats

A great selection of quality bbq. Try the sides they are fantastic. Good selection for the kids. Stick to the bbq vs the steaks because that's what they do best

The BBQ here is pretty average. Sometimes their chicken is good and moist, sometimes, it is terribly dry. I do love their sweet tea and the fries are really good. We mainly go here to see friends.

There are 3 Ken's BBQ in Lake City, We prefer the Ken's BBQ on South 41. The BBQ is middle of the road, I do like their smoked chicken dinner. The wait staff are all great and the prices are very reasonable. The BBQ salad is also very good. They have daily specials.

Needed a BBQ fix on my drive from Tallahassee to Orlando and Google pointed me in the direction of Ken's. It's a 10 minute drive from the interstate and unfortunately I don';t think it was worth it. It wasn't terrible but it was only average. I had the pork and rib combo and neither were memorable. The pork came machine... More

It is a very homie style BBQ joint. The food is good and worth the stop. Chicken was better than the pork. Service was good and very quick. The fries were freshly cooked and very hot. Prices are reasonable.
